Jonathan has written a beautiful tribute about his father and asked us to share it with you:

Robert Morris Katz, DO, passed away on March 27.  He was 88 years old.  He was a native Detroiter who graduated from Central High School and Wayne State University.  As a Doctor of Osteopathy, he was the Chief of Radiology at Art Centre Hospital for many years and worked as a radiologist until the age of 80.  He was a dedicated, skilled clinician who loved his work.  Bob was passionate about the environment.  He loved to garden, travel, exercise, and hike, and he knew every trail in some of the most beautiful national parks in the United States and Canada.  He loved hiking with his friends and family and could always be counted on for his hiking expertise.  He recently hiked in Big Bend National Park at the age of 86 with his children.  He was an award-winning photographer.  Bob always had a positive attitude and an unquenchable zest for life.  His many friendships lasted his entire life.  He was a loving and caring son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather.  He lost his first wife June after almost 34 years of marriage, and was devoted to his second wife Gail for the past 26 years.  He is survived by his wife Gail, children Jonathan (Terry), Deborah, Suzi (Jerry), and Michael (Sandra), grandchildren Molly Katz Nogami (Glen), Natalie and Andrea Aresta-Katz, and Aashma, Jonathan, and Daniel Goldfarb, and sister, Valerie Swartz (Perry).  Contributions to JARC in Michigan are welcome:
